A Detailed Discussion on Waterjet Cutting Bellows Applications

Waterjet cutting has become the fastest-growing machine tool process owing to its unmatched benefits, including versatility, ease of operation, and more. This manufacturing technique uses high-speed, high-density, and ultra-high jets of water that are pressurized by pumps, which deliver supersonic steam of water to cut and shape different materials. Today, waterjet machines with advance technology and functionalities are used to accomplish precise cutting tasks. These machines feature several critical parts and components, which are subjected to heavy wear, high-pressure conditions, dust, or other contaminants. Thus, it is of utmost importance to protect these machines and equipment from environmental elements and ensure their unmatched performance. This can be accomplished using bellows or gaskets. They can effectively cover water jet machines and protect them from damage, vibration, and contamination. Today, these waterjet cutting bellows are highly preferred in various industries. This post highlights applications of waterjet cutting bellows.

Basic Information About Waterjet Cutting Bellows

Waterjet bellows can be made using water and abrasion-resistant materials. However, many base materials used to make waterjet bellows, including Aluminized Kevlar, Polyurethane coated Polyester, Silicone Fiberglass cloth, Polyurethane coated Nylon, peroxidized Kevlar, Polyurethane coated Nomex and PVC Coated Polyester. They are made using either of the following techniques:

  • Thermal Welding
  • Perforated Fold
  • Combination Fold
  • Sewn Shape

These bellows are completely leak proof, and offer flexibility and dimensional stability. These bellows can be customized in terms of length, material thickness, and so on to suit your application requirements.

Role of Bellows in Waterjet Machines

Bellows are one of the crucial parts of advanced waterjet machines. They secure these machines and equipment in the following ways:

  • Bellows are installed at vulnerable places in many waterjet machines. Since there is ultra-high water pressure inside the systems, they are subjected to explosion. Therefore, bellows are installed in waterjet machines to sustain the water pressure, and protect the systems from damage and wear.
  • Made using superior quality materials, they can resist chemicals, abrasive materials, and extreme work conditions. Waterjet bellows offer protection against dust, dirt, abrasive fluids, and contamination.
  • Additionally, the bellows prevent misalignment, axial travel, angular deflection, and sudden movement of the parts and components of the waterjet machines.

Applications of Waterjet Bellows

Many waterjet machines and equipment utilize bellows for their regular functioning. Here is the list of industries and applications where they can be easily found. So, let’s take a look at them.

  • Auto Industry
  • Naval Industry
  • Aerospace Industry
  • Textile Industry
  • Food Industry
  • Electronics
  • Fiberglass
  • Ceramic Industry

Knowing the high demands of waterjet cutting bellows across industries, it is necessary to source them from trusted, reliable, and experienced bellows manufacturers. Nabell USA Corp stands tall among its other competitors. With vast years of market presence and skilled employees, the company specializes in designing and manufacturing waterjet cutting bellows.
